I don't know why anyone except someone who is bitter would even ask this question or give a rat's butt what the answer is.


Since I started the thread I guess I should address that part. Nope not bitter in the least but thanks for your concern and insight into my personal psyche. :)

Single Parent Definition ?
Posted: 6/15/2013 11:32:26 PM
I am reluctant to call myself a single parent, even though I technically and semantically qualify. My daughter lives with me full time and my son goes to his mom for half the time. Plus, I am the schedule keeper for most things. But I am not parenting totally alone, which disqualifies the title of single parent in my mind.

I have, however, milked the status of it once or twice when others were making a big deal about it. It seemed to be even more heroic because I was male. Plus more attractive to the ladies. So, if someone else suggested I was a single parent I didn't try to talk them out of it.
